Windows 10 update offline account option hidden: Here’s where to find it

Windows 10 update offline account option hidden: Here’s where to find it

With the most recent update to Windows 10, Microsoft's made a little switch that's annoyed a number of Windows users. They've appeared to have made the "use offline account" option more difficult to find. If you're connected to the internet when the latest Windows 10 update is installing, the cloud-based account option will be the only option available. At least, that's how it'll appear to the common user.

Windows 10 20H1 could be another disaster unless Microsoft takes this step

Windows 10 20H1 could be another disaster unless Microsoft takes this step

Taking a breather from Samsung, Apple, and Huawei, the tech world will be focusing its eyes on Microsoft when it launches new Surfaces devices. The company has proven that it can make great hardware to go along with Windows 10. Unfortunately, the tech giant most popular for its software now has an ironic problem of being unable to maintain the quality of its software. That's especially true for Windows 10 updates that seem to break twice a year or sometimes even every month. The Windows 10 20H1, a.k.a. the May 2020 update, could prove to be another hair-pulling experience unless Microsoft makes this important change.

macOS Catalina might be out as early as next week

macOS Catalina might be out as early as next week

iOS 13 already rolled out but, unlike the betas and Apple's announcements, it launched alone. The much-hyped iPadOS came a few days later but the matching macOS Catalina, a.k.a. macOS 10.15 was still nowhere in sight. Apple said it would start rolling out some time in October but didn't give a date users could pin on their calendar. But thanks to Apple's own Danish site, early adopters can look forward to next week to start their journey towards the latest macOS release.

iOS 13 Optimized Battery Charging and why Android is next

With the release of the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro with iOS 13 came a new feature called Optimized Battery Charging.

Galaxy S10 updates with fancy Note 10 camera features

Galaxy S10 updates with fancy Note 10 camera features

This morning Samsung Galaxy S10 and Samsung Galaxy Note 10 users both got a software upgrade to their camera. The upgrade comes via the official Camera app for Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus - which is weird. Generally this sort of update is relegated to larger software packages, but here it's gone the route of the individual. That's not something Samsung's done too often with this series in the past.

Windows 10 20H1 will make the Bluetooth pairing process faster

Windows 10 20H1 will make the Bluetooth pairing process faster

Microsoft already made it know not to expect big new features in the Windows 10 update later this year. That will be focused on polishing the user experience and fixing bugs. Look to version 20H1, instead, if you want to hear about new features and it does seem like Microsoft is packing quite the features based on Insider Previews. The latest drop might not have big changes but they can be life-changing for users that constantly pair Bluetooth devices or, better yet, take a lot of screenshots.

Google Chrome introduces new features to reorder tab clutter

Many people live in their browsers to the point that having 30 or more tabs open at the same time, some of them might even be days old. And that's on just one device, with some people these days owning at least a phone in addition to a computer. In other words, managing browser tabs can be quite the mess and Google is finally giving Chrome users a bit of help with new features that won't exactly reduce the number of tabs you open but at least make them more manageable.
